Car Feature: SMOOTH GATE '53 SC
The VW world has gone crazy for Barndoor Buses - the Type 2s built from the start of production in 1950 up to 1955.
Now any 1953 Single Cab is a rare beast, but this one takes rare to another level!

> This pick up started its life on a farm...
It was one of the first VW’s sold in
Canada back in early 1953!
> When VW came up with the single cab
design in 1952 they had created the
ultimate work horse!
> Like many Barndoor owners Trevor wanted
more power than the original 25hp...
He’s got about 130 horses packed in the back now!
> Trevor chose for a simple 100%
as factory delivered interior.
> It doesn’t get much straighter
than this smooth gate pick up!
